The VAC consists of an interdisciplinary team of experts that specialize in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of patients with vascular anomalies. This team approach makes it possible to schedule a child’s appointments so they can see all the necessary specialists on the same day in the same location. Together, the team provides a treatment strategy that is tailored to meet the child’s individual needs. If needed, the team nurse coordinator follows up with the patient’s family to facilitate further testing, evaluations and treatments. By combining the expertise of specialists and customized treatment for each patient, the VAC ensures the best possible outcome.

The VAC core team consists of medical and surgical specialists from Pediatric Surgery, Dermatology and Interventional Radiology. In addition, the team works closely with other Oishei Children's Hospital specialists in a variety of other disciplines, including:
